    This is my all feelings about new loot system what about you?

    So you skip over the week you got the item? An awesome representation there...

    I mostly get 28g 50s, but on rare occasions I do get a piece. Faster than getting LFR gear from DS.

    I keep spending all of my coins on bosses that only drop weapons, first within the guild run, and then on lfr. Imagine what, I m still running with the 2 weapons that you can buy from klaxxi when u get exalted (not even hc dungeons care to drop a weapon). But I m not complaining, I do get extra ~90g per week.

    I knew it. You can explain the loot system all you want, but people will rage less if in all the weeks without loot, they SEE that somebody else won it? Under the old system you wouldn't have won either. The weeks would have been EXACTLY the same, maybe worse because you wouldn't have the extra shot at loot with coins and possibly missed out also in the week where you now won s.th.

    So, in short: the internet.

    I won 0 drops in DS LFR on my hunter from 83kills.
    I won 2 drops in DS LFR on my priest from 68kills.
    I won 1 drop in DS LFR on my dk from 8kills.

    I still have that bad luck now in MOP LFR but it doesn't bother me anymore. Now I run LFR for the big amount of VP and the pleasurable people I meet (hahaha just kidding on that last one). I don't feel like I didn't progress from getting no drops.
    With coins I also adapted to just get some extra gold from them and if it is loot, it's extra win.

    If you raid for seeing gear, you'll end up being disappointed anyway. Has been like that since vanilla.
    Lower your expectations and you'll never be disappointed, that's how unlucky people survive the RNG in WoW for all those years.

    I find it rather funny that some people still don't understand what RNG means.

    I don't mind the LFR Item loot, but I have been stuck on 9 sigils of wisdom for two weeks now (my guild is only 2/6 HoF) and it ticks me off to see everyone get those but me. I have like 30 of the other sigils aswell...

    I think you should practice your drawing skills instead of running LFR. It looks atrocious.
    Arguing with a troll is like playing chess with a pigeon. No matter what you do or say, he will just knock over the pieces, take a shit on the board and strut around like he won the whole damn thing.

    Last time I checked, running the LFR in cata (almost) VP capped you. Now you don't get even half of VP cap from running three times as much content (and since it's divided into 5 raids you also spend additional 1-1.5 hour waiting in queue unless you are healer.

    I'm content with the LFR loot system.
    You just have bad luck and you think that LFR DS with all those people needing for themselfs, others or for trading would've given you more loot, is downright silly.

    I like the system really, eventho I've been unlucky on my alt too (and only a few pieces on my main, but enough for now ). Heck, yesterday no drop in MSV LFR on the DK, just means I'm more likely to get a HoF / ToES piece sooner.

    In cata I capped VP just running the dungeons quickly. Now that's not an option anymore and scenario+LFR queue is just a quick means.
    But I'm sure I'll eventually get sick enough of the raids to stop lfr in mop too.

    Are you looting boss on normal ? If you see someone get it, that means whole raid got it.
    I thought it was like lfr, you just got one, missed 3-4 sigils lol

    I like the new system. It's good that you no longer have to compete with other people. It works.

    I just wish it worked for me. Really getting bored of running LFR and dpsing my tits off and contributing a lot to the raid, then receiving 28g in return.
    I do think they need to change the system in some way to actually reward people for doing good. Because people do better with incentives. It would make the LFR experience that little bit nicer knowing that people were specifically learning encounters and dodging things (even if it is unnecessary to do so in LFR), because in the end they know they might get something extra because of it.

    Only loot I get from LFR is pieces I already have on heroic

    Got 5 pieces from MV, 0 from HoF.

    Last few days:
    6 HoF bosses + 3 extra rolls = only gold
    3 MV bosses + 2 extra rolls = only gold
    Sha of Anger = just gold (and boots ofc)!

    1st time in MV I got 3 loots!

    RNG is displeased with me - still rocking a 442 head with no slots...
